Magnus Klaar Tests and fixes for the generate_etag/2 callback
The return value from the generate_etag/2 callback is expected to be a
binary tagged with either weak or strong. This binary is quoted, and
may be prefixed with W/ before it is set as the value of the ETag header
in the response.

For backwards compatibility with older handlers where the return value
was expected to be a quoted binary a function has been added to parse any
return values that are untagged binaries. All untagged binaries are expected
to be a valid value for the ETag header.

@asabil asabil Make media type parsing more relaxed

Loïc Hoguin Add an 'onrequest' hook for HTTP
This new protocol option is a fun.

It expects a single arg, the Req, and should only return a possibly
modified Req. This can be used for many things like URL rewriting,
access logging or listener-wide authentication.

If a reply is sent inside the hook, then Cowboy will consider the
request handled and will move on to the next one.

Loïc Hoguin Merge branch 'log-proplist-req' ba75e8b
Loïc Hoguin Add chunked transfer encoding support and rework the body reading API
Introduces 3 low level functions and updates the existing higher
levels functions. The new primitives are has_body/1, body_length/1
and stream_body/1. In addition to that, a helper function
init_stream/4 has been added.

Streaming a body implies to decode the Transfer-Encoding and
Content-Encoding used for the body. By default, Cowboy will try
to figure out what was used and decode them properly. You can
override this if you want to disable this behavior or simply
support more encodings by calling the init_stream/4 function
before you start streaming the body.

@asabil asabil Make charsets parsing more relaxed
Certain user agents send invalid Accept-Charset headers, like the
following: "ISO-8859-1;utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7"

The user agent with which this behavior was observed presented itself
with the User-Agent string: "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1;
en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0" Although this doesn't
appear to be correct. The request might have been mangled by a
transparent proxy.

Loïc Hoguin Fix and rework the HTTP test suite
Use a proper HTTP client to run all tests. This client is currently
undocumented and should not be used.

Includes a few fixes:

* Fix a bug in the max_keepalive test
* Fix a bug with max_keepalive handling
* Fix a bug in stream_body/1 where data was lost under some conditions

The tests now run quite faster than before.

All the tests now run twice: once for TCP, once for SSL.

Commits on May 04, 2012
Loïc Hoguin Add an 'onresponse' hook
This new protocol option is a fun.

It expects 3 args: the Status code used in the reply (this is the
cowboy_http:status() type, it can be an integer or a binary), the
headers that will be sent in the reply, and the Req. It should
only return a possibly modified Req. This can be used for many
things like error logging or custom error pages.

If a reply is sent inside the hook, then Cowboy will discard the
reply initially sent. Extra caution must be used in the handlers
making use of inline chunked replies as they will throw an error.

This fun cannot be used as a filter, you can either observe the
reply sent or discard it to send a different one instead.

The hook will not be called for replies sent from inside the hook.

Just more cleanup in order to have req() opaque.

Only cowboy_protocol remaining now.
@essen essen Use cowboy_req:version/1 in cowboy_protocol where applicable
More cleanup towards making cowboy_req:req() opaque.

This removes cowboy_protocol's dependency on http.hrl!

Remove http.hrl in the process.

If you feel furious about this change after reaching this commit,
don't worry! You probably just need a few access or modification
functions to be added in cowboy_req for your needs. Problem is,
I don't know these. I'll be very thankful if you can open a ticket
and tell me all about it so the best solution can be swiftly
implemented to make you happy again.

@essen essen Don't use decode_packet/3 for parsing the request-line
First step in making all methods and header names binaries to
get rid of many inconsistencies caused by decode_packet/3.

Methods are all binary now. Note that since they are case
sensitive, the usual methods become <<"GET">>, <<"POST">> and so on.
@essen essen Don't use decode_packet/3 for parsing the headers
Header names are now binaries. Since header names are case insensitive
they are all converted to lowercase. For example: <<"content-length">>.

The max_line_length option was removed. Three new options have been
added instead:

 *  max_request_line_length (defaults to 4096)
 *  max_header_name_length (defaults to 64)
 *  max_header_value_length (defaults to 4096)
@essen essen Make multipart part headers binary lowercase
Here we do not remove decode_packet yet, we just lowercase the
header name and transform it into a binary if needed, to fix
the consistency issue.
